THE CCS EXPERIENCE
We believe that the most successful approach to international volunteering is one that is community-led and driven. That's why our in-country staff is made up entirely of local nationals, who truly understand the needs of their own communities. We work in partnership with sustainable community organizations who are dedicated to creating positive change in communities, and know how to effectively work with international volunteers to meet these goals.
As an international volunteer, we'll work with you to learn about your Skills & Interests and individually match you with a CCS Project where you can engage in meaningful work. And, the full CCS in-country team will be with you every step of the way to support you in making a difference.
The earlier - the better! This way, you can start practicing some language skills, reading up on the culture and community, and looking forward to your effective volunteer work. We do suggest reserving your space at least 60 days in advance, however, as many programs do fill quickly. Looking to travel very soon? We've worked with many volunteers with last-minute plans, so we can absolutely provide an incredible experience closer to your program start date, as long as the program still has space available!
